Bay City hits a snag..

"An update to the course at Bay City State Recreation Area..

The District Supervisor determined that the property will not accommodate the 18 hole layout that I presented, so in short the money and pledges have been returned. The plan that the Park has is to proceed again in the near future with an attempt to build an 9 hole Professional course, with an 9 hole Youth course somewhere in close proximity.

As I understand the project as 2011 closes out, there is nothing on the table for a timeline, no designer working on a new plan and currently no money aside from a few hundred dollars. In 2012 the plan is for The Friend's group to again attempt a grant of $10,000.00 and retain a designer to see the 9 plus 9 design get up and running."

Clearwater State Park (between Atlanta MI and Onaway MI) just contacted me to help with course design and proposal for an 18 hole DGC to be installed in 2012. I will pass on more information after I go look at the property they wish to build it on (they have over 300 acres to work with).

The Watervliet City Commissioners voted to go ahead with my dual tee 9 hole course proposal in and around Flaherty Park last night. Now the permitting process begins. More updates to come but this is a huge milestone reached!

St. Clair County

Any tips on what to expect from the commision? I have a ton of info and nice presentation packets with some mids and sample scorecards too for each commision member but they're only gonna give me a 3-minute window if other people show up with park ideas.

What did it take to get an okay from your meeting?

The Edge at Scottville has been approved to be permanent and 4 holes are being added to make it 24. Some changes to existing holes TBD.
